Debbie Goettel, Mayor; Michael Howard (arrived 6:00pm); Edwina Garcia; Tom Fitzhenry; and Pat Elliott

Steven L. Devich, City Manager; John Stark, Community Development Director; Jack Broz, Transportation Engineer; Kristin Asher, Public Works Director; Kari Sinning, Deputy City Clerk.

Mayor Goettel asked that agenda items be moved in order to accommodate Council Member Howard. ITEM #1

DISCUSSION REGARDING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF INTERNATIONAL BOULEVARD (COUNCIL MEMO NO. 81)

Community Development Director, John Stark gave a brief overview of Council Memo No. 81 stating the residents that would be affected by the name change. City Manager, Steve Devich, shared information about the implementation of the renaming of 76th/77th Street to International Boulevard. There is a time constraint with the Audi Dealership that is being built along the road and we need to get the City of Edina involved. The financial funding is underway and the Cities would have to pay for their own signage; approximately $80,000 for the City of Edina and $51,000 for the City of Richfield. Mayor Goettel questioned the timing for the next budget session. City Manager Devich stated that there would be plenty of time to implement.

City Manager Devich also stated that the signage can coincide with the underpass and the federal funding from the Met Council in January 2017; however, the construction may not start until Early 2018. The consensus was favorable and the City Council urges the City to take the lead on implementing the plan. ITEM #2

DISCUSSION AND PRESENTATION REGARDING 6529 PENN AVENUE (DUNKIN DONUTS)

Community Development Director, John Stark, stated that he was approached by the owners of 6529 Penn Avenue to develop a Dunkin Donuts on the location. The Penn Avenue Overlay Design Guidelines which are very descriptive pose a complication to the project and City Staff wanted to get the opinion of the City Council for this proposed reconstruction. Rick Houser, owner of the 6529 Penn Avenue, introduced the site plan; however, the site plans do not meet all of the guidelines. Mayor Goettel posed questions regarding parking and access ways and the Staff Concern. Community Development Director, John Stark, stated the issues with the proposed plan; the high volume of traffic in the drive-thru and the façade should face the street instead of the in the parking lot. Staff believes that the guidelines could be followed more closely if the Flowerama were to be demolished; however, the owners do not believe that would be financially feasible. Council Member Fitzhenry also commented on the traffic that would be caused by the vehicles waiting at the drive-thru. Council Member Elliott recognizes City Staff concerns for the guidelines and approves of the concept, but worries about the guidelines and urges the owners to work more to find a workable design. Council Member Elliott also posed a question regarding the possible tenant in the old Flowerama building. The owner, Rick Houser, stated that they have gotten numerous tenants approach them; however, have not made any decisions. Mr. Houser also stated that they have created multiple designs to try and meet the guidelines of the Penn Avenue Design, but with their shallow lot, they do not believe it would be financially feasible to have the perfect design. Planning Commissioners, Erin Vrieze Daniels, Chair, and Sean Hayford Oleary, established concerns about the noise level of the vehicles at the drive thru as well as the vehicle exhaust affecting the apartment building behind the proposed site. A representative from Dunkin’ Donuts stated that there is a case study done for a drive thru speaker technology in a suburb of Chicago that shows promising results for noise cancellation in the drive thru and that a drive thru is required for this location. Council Member Howard would like to see if there are some compromises could be made to move forward and making progress on Penn Avenue. Planning Commissioner, Susan Rosenberg, would really like to see the project happen but the layout presented is not beneficial to the residents. The general consensus from the Planning Commission and the City Council was for the site plan to be redrawn with street presence and noise/exhaust as the major concerns.

ITEM #3

UPDATE ON THE ORANGE LINE BUS RAPID TRANSIT (COUNCIL MEMO NO. 85)

Mayor Goettel introduced Kristin Asher, Public Works Director, who announced Rebecca Fabumi and Christina Morrison, Representatives from Metro Transit that provided a presentation regarding the Orange Line Bus Rapid Transit. The representatives reiterated the fact that safety is a very important issue that they will be taking steps to ensure the safety of the riders and drivers alike. Mayor Goettel raised a question regarding riders parking in the neighborhoods and walking to the bus stops. Mrs. Morrison stated that they will urge residents to use the park and rides at Southdale Center and Best Buy Corporate as well as to use multimodal transportation. The City Council is excited for the project and is hopeful for the end result.
